  1. I'd imagine you could bake these as well, right? Other than the frying part they look hella awesssomeeee!

  2. I've seen some posts that have baked them, how does that work ? Do you do the dipping in egg and etc ?

  3. Yes, you could bake them as well. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. Try doing them on a sheet with grates so the heat circulates around the chicken...this will result in crispy tenders!

  4. is it sweetened condensed milk?
